I don’t know how but at some point in one of my moves I lost my passport. It’s a been an extremely annoying predicament as it makes filling out job paperwork difficult and has definitely made foreign travel impossible. Every post office visit is a reminder that I have yet to renew this travel document and that I really, really need to. It’s inexcusable! I now feel like I have more urgent reason to get a passport as we recently got our hands on Bellroy’s Travel Wallet, a sleek, sexy, leather travel carryall to help hold your documents in style.
The wallet is a somewhat exaggerated billfold made specifically to make your traveling easier. Instead of using those fucking ridiculous security pouches or one of those dumb around-the-neck ID holders, Bellroy gives you the adult version of travel assistance. It’s masculine and made of super soft, fine leather that you can practically feel aging wonderfully in your fingertips.
The beauty of the wallet is in the details–and there are a lot. There’s a pocket for your passport, an area for business and credit cards, a double sleeve for bills (for monetary notes and airline tickets), in addition to a small silver pen embedded at its center. Every time I travel–even without a passport–even without a passport, I’m a mess with what to do with my wallet and then plane tickets and then my phone and money and blah bler bley blah: everything gets lost in pockets and I have a panic attack during boarding time because I convince myself that I’ve lost my ticket. I have to get on a plane for in late November and I will be using this wallet because it is the perfect travel container. It’s just so smart–and good looking, too.
You can find the wallet on the Australian brand’s website. Bellroy runs their brand on the philosophy of “slimming your wallet,” a philosophy every person should take to their wallet. Why not apply it to travel? I certainly need a well designed answer to that–you probably need that, too. Now, if only I had a passport…
